Every American should be required to listen to this show on
High volume, while tilted, in a decent touring automobile, while descending the red pass between Durango and Ouray, Colorado. Part of the citizen test, part of the coming of age. What a wonderful world it would be. Love 9/2/68, so much.

There's nothing better than a show like this where the band is firing on all six cylinders. The vocals are a tad low but it hardly matters for these songs (Death Don't is missing).

This show is right smack in the middle of that period where Bobby and Pigpen were allegedly getting heat from Jerry (and the rest of the band?) for failing to bring the goods on a regular basis, not practicing enough, not being serious enough ... or something. I've listened to everything in the Archive from the summer of '68 and for the life of me I can't detect any problem. On the contrary, just listen to Bobby and Pig at this show! Crazy stuff. IMHO, the next shows that most consistently reach the heights heard here are the Avalon 10-12-68 and the Silver Dollar Faire in Chico 11-1-68 (with the Chico being the most "hairy" of the three).

One of the best Dark Stars of the year, from one of the best shows of the year! Gotta get this essential upgrade.

This recording may not sound perfect, but it is so much better than the other ones from this date. It is a gem from 1968. Thanks for all the hard work and skill put into this!
